January Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

I’m actually proud of starting off the new reading year fairly strong. My main goal this year was to not let myself get bogged down by trying to cram as many books into it as possible. I want to actually focus on what I really want to read, even if it’s a long book (which were the majority of my reads this month). And if January was any indication, I think I’m doing a pretty good job so far. Isn’t it a nice feeling when you take the pressure off yourself?

Did you get a lot of reading done in January? Were you able to read all of the books on your TBR? Did you read any new favorites? What book did you like the least? What do you plan on reading in February?
